In many ways this body is in better nick than the first car. Pity it has no papers. An interior swap is easier than a drivetrain swap. The tt would probably have to come out anyway. The plan is: exhaust then complete rear end, tranny and tt. Rebuild the tt and tc bearings.
Next rear main seal on the engine. Transmission output seal. Then button it up. Iíll be sure to check the fuel lines.

so what are the extra two gauges in the console for? - the left one looks like it could be coolant temp - but isn't there already one of those in the main panel - really have no idea what the one on the right does with it's + and - sides

So thatís what it is. I thought it was a 91 muffler only. This is my first 928 restore so a bit of a learning curve.

Use two combination wrenches. Put the correct closed end size on the bolt. Hook the second wrench onto the end of the first wrench such that you can use it as an extension of the first wrench. Use the combination of the two wrenches to break the bolts loose.

Hi. That pita bell housing bolt began to strip so I tried dropping the rear end removed the bolts between the tt and bell housing. The tt is disconnected but it wonít roll back enough to remove. Removing the rear end was quite easy. I left the wheels on so it could roll. I ran out of time so Iíll try again tomorrow.
Iíll have to drop the engine anyway since i need the exhaust manifolds.
I also managed to remove the ac compressor, air pump, alternator, ps pump. Lots of cleaning with solvents.

A common fix,..........cut the tail brace of the upper bell housing with a sawsall, the TT will drop down

Got a lot done today. I dropped the engine to get out the bell housing. PITA. Removed the tt and tc. Both sound good, I know that would be false economy. Ordered the bearings and tranny pump seal. Tomorrow prep the the receiving car rear end and swap over the exhaust manifolds.

90 roller

Too busy today to take pics. Damn that transmission is heavy. Dragging it on loose ground didnít help either. I had to deploy all the wisdom of the ancients cus there was no app for this.
I got the rear ends swapped. The wiring harness on the 87-donor is completely deteriorated. So I need to swap the good harness from the 89. Plus the 89 rdk sensor. What to do with that? Of course all the cv boots are shot, so the left axle nut same off no issue but the left has broken 4 1/2Ē drives. Fun and games people. Back to work for 4 day before I can touch it again.

Started working on the tc bearing. Got the top one off easy but ran out of time getting the bottom one off. My mechanic friend was tired and surly last night. He was in no mood to help me. His puller fingers arenít long enough. Iíll do some research today. Here are some pics of the swapped rear ends. Note the bent right lower arm in the first pic.
